To be honest, when we saw the IN1 Multi-Tool Utility Case, we thought that most of the cases we’d seen before were pretty close to useless. Ok, this is not really true, many of the cases are pretty amazing, but this is the kind of an impression that the Multi-Tool Utility Case gives. You literally can’t believe that no one has thought of this before.
This product is a real multi functional case which adds new value to the fact that our phone is one of the things which is always with us. So why not add a whole lot of functionality to it.
The IN1 is made of polycarbonate and the outer part is covered with rubber which makes it very durable. The inside is scratch resistant, soft and very pleasant to touch. The only ‘downside’ is that the case makes your phone a lot thicker – about double as thick – but there are two redeeming features. First of all, all the functionality had to be stacked somewhere, and second of all, this is still not very bulky, since even the doubled thickness means that the dimensions are just 5 x 0.6 x 2.4 inches. So, don’t complain about this.
The IN1’s two-part construction makes the phone fit perfectly and its removal from the case easy. Now, let’s see what the tools are. There are eight of them:
– 2 pens (one red and one blue)
– 2 screwdrivers (one Philips and one Flat-head)
– 1 nail file
– A pair of tweezers
– A pair of scissors
– A toothpick
For real, all these. And they all fit the case perfectly; they are easy to find and remove for use. Additionally, they all have a plastic head at the top that you can use as handle, but also to increase your leverage since you can use the handle in the opposite way and use your phone as a handle.
Moreover, the IN1 iPhone case has a stand that lets you place your iPhone in an upright position for easy viewing.
And the best thing is that this case is actually allowed by the TSA, partly due to the fact that there is no blade-tool inside.
There are three case color options to choose from – black, white and clear, while you can mix it up design wise by choosing a differently colored tool heads. The head colors available are pink, orange, blue, green, black and white.
The price is also acceptable. The IN1 Multi-Tool Utility Case for iPhones 5 and 5S costs $44.99 on Amazon and it is said that the Samsung Galaxy version is coming. watch video below
